Storyline

At an agricultural ball where he has gone to advance himself Boycie meets Rupert and Jonty,who own a polo club,and entice him to invest with them for the social kudos - and a possible knighthood. The plan is to spend Christmas in Switzerland with them but due to heavy snow at the airport the Boyces are forced to spend Christmas at home. On television they see a police information show revealing Jonty and Rupert to be con-men. Furthermore the Driscoll brothers,having read in a society magazine that Boycie would be in Switzerland for the holiday season, followed them out there and had a wasted journey.

The first festive outing to Winterdown Farm
23 December 2016 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

The almost surprise ratings success of the first few episodes of this 'Only Fools and Horses' spin-off meant that writer John Sullivan was quickly commissioned to write this festive outing.

Sadly, after the brilliant standard of the first series (the only one to be written solely by Sullivan and the better for it) this special doesn't actually feel that special. The 'central characters trying to impress at a upper class social occasion' plot feels a little bit like the 'Only Fools' episode 'A Royal Flush' and that wasn't a great episode either.

Much funnier actually was the plot involving the farmhands back at the farm. All of the supporting actors shine in these scenes.

This was a decent episode, but not one of the best.
